David & Heather from New Jersey visited our facility on October 17th, 2013 and interacted with Scarlett our Cinnamon White Faced Capuchin Monkey on a General Wildlife Encounter. Scarlett was born at our facility and is now about 4 months old. She drinks formula specially made with vitamins and nutrients to keep her strong and healthy. Scarlett is a New World Monkey which means that they can be found in the forests of Central America and the extreme north-western portion of South America. When She is older she will eat monkey biscuits, fruits and veggies and occasionally we prepare special treats for our primates. To read more on monkeys like Scarlett click here.

Everyone meet Bonnie & Clyde! Bonnie and Clyde are both Black and White Ruffed Lemurs. The Ruffed lemur is the largest of the true lemurs, measuring when full grown, four feet in length including the long tail of about two feet. The fur is long and soft, and the ears are hidden by a ruff of hair. The color pattern varies and may be different on the right and left sides of a specimen. Black and white ruffed lemurs live in groups of two to five individuals, thought to be an adult mated pair and their young. Greetings are very ceremonious involving reciprocal grooming. They mark their territory by screaming and by scent. They rub leaves, branches or fruit with their palms to leave a distinctive odor. During the day the Ruffed lemur sleeps in a hollow tree curled up into a ball. It is a nimble climber, most active at dusk and during the first part of the night, when it forages for fruit. It normally progresses by walking or running on larger branches, and leaps from tree to tree. The Ruffed lemur lives in eastern Madagascar. It is a forest species found in humid rain forests.
